Our Journey With Educational Technology
Our own learning journey in effective use of technology has been driven by a clear focus on improving education and supporting our teachers and middle leaders to put students at the centre of their own learning journey. We have an established and extensive Quality Team and in improving what we do we have worked collaboratively with colleges and schools to share and develop practice. Our established English, maths and digital network has helped us and other colleges shape and develop diagnostic and formative assessment, which has underpinned our success in achievement of English and maths and been fundamental to our ease to manage learning fully online.
We are delighted to become an EdTech Demonstrator College and can offer support to both secondary schools and colleges. We value and recognise the importance of working together, across schools and colleges so young people do not fall through the gap in their learning journey into post 16 after such disruption to their learning. We have recruited additional resource to our team to ensure we can provide the expertise you need.
Our approach builds on our ethos of shared learning and we will work with you to consider your own priorities and then draw upon the expertise of our team of Advanced Practitioners and Learning Technologists to help you to set you on a journey to build capacity in your school or college. We can provide support in effective use of a range of technology but the emphasis will always be on improving the quality of education and the well-being of our students and teachers in making digital work for them.
